Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Me and my boyfriend Louis are joining a team of awesome people to take on the Autumn Wolf Run to support an amazing charity, iDID Adventure. The Wolf Run is a 10k obstacle course across muddy terrain and takes place in Warwickshire on Sunday 3rd Sept, 2017.
This is a pretty big challenge for me as I have Joint Hypermobility Syndrome/ Ehlers Danlos Syndrome - Hypermobility Type which causes joint instability, constant pain and fatigue. I love exercise but it's not easy!! I'm really passionate about the work iDID does so I'm determined to get to the finish line to support the charity.
Any donation large or small will go along way to enable more people to access their work.
iDID Adventure is an award-winning charity using adventure sports as a platform to improve resilience, well-being & confidence amongst marginalised individuals. Through an exciting range of specialist programmes, iDID harness the power of sports such as rock climbing and wakeboarding to engage young people and promote positive life choices.
Young people affected by mental health issues experience low self-esteem, confidence and emotional well-being and are less likely to make positive life choices, and form meaningful relationships. Further, these young people also experience poorer outcomes in health and education.
- Half of those with lifetime mental health issues experience their first symptoms by the age of 14
- Deaf and disabled people are disproportionately affected by mental health issues
- 1 in 12 young people deliberately self harm
- Half of those with lifetime mental health issues experience their first symptoms by the age of 14, and three quarters before their mid-20's
- 1 in 10 children aged 5-16 years has a mental health problem
Organisations like IDID, are so important to supporting those who need and extra step up in life. We want to fundraise so they can continue their vital work!
